Fruit-studded sweet cream makes an easy treat. Sounds perfect for summer, but we whipped it up for Thankgsiving and it is good in the fall too. I found it quite a while ago at Baking Like Betty (apparently it's a Paula Deen recipe) and I finally got around to making it after all this time of the recipe sitting in my file.
